My brother once died in FTL a very stupid way:

So he ran across a station and chose to dock and explore. Apparantley, one crew member decided to be left behind. That would've been fine..
If he wasn't playing with the engi type B. :lol:

Haha early on in my playing I lost my one engi to the Zoltan nebula event where they're raised to a higher plane of existence. I was like... Great. But what about me?

How about if you had to draw straws with the Engi? Or how about being torn apart by cannibals? Those must be some very hungry humans if they're down to eating the machinery for sustenance.
Or rocks... crystals, metal beings that absorb oxygen and ghosts...

This has happened twice now, both on Stealth A.

-Low HP
-Come across unarmed Zoltan Transport
-'A Zoltan shield? Hells yes.'
-Proceed to go to quest beacon
-'Uhh, 1 then 2, right?'
-It's actually 1, 1, and then 2
-Die in flames because of the Rebel ship

So this happened to a friend I was watching. We managed to download Steam through the blocks our school puts on the computers, so we play FTL sometimes.

One day, I was watching him play, and he was fighting the final boss. He beat the first phase pretty easily. Then, the teacher got up to walk around. He had started to repair some stuff, so when he put the assignment page over the FTL screen, he left it unpaused.

He forgot that he had rerouted his Oxygen system power to his engines. :shock:

8 amazing, fully trained crew members, lost. He realized his mistake a few moments after and still managed to save an Engi and to other people.

He lost after that.

Doesn't FTL pause if you switch to another program or did you modify the game so it would still run in the background?
Because that sounds like a serious problem if your game doesn't pause when you hit the "Boss Key" and you should look into re-enabling that function.

Or was it a case of your friend literally putting the pages of the assignment over the physical screen?

Crystal Vengeance on the Crystal B screwed me over when I was in an asteroid field. The shard blew up the enemy ship with all my crew :shock:

this is the dumbest way to save the humanity. why dont just make a nuclear boom and delete it all. i mean we all have to die, then just break it all. anyway the possible luck would be somehow a meteor falling from the sky and strike the gaint spider and the pilot somehow come out alive in the situation. sound rediculous but the only way to save it all! by the way have you guys tried out the game dumb way to die battle bay in apknite. it got the most stupid way to die, very frustrating game!

So I played ftl with ce using the nesasio (I think). in that run, one of my room was hit, it was a 2x2 room. that shot caused a hull breach. I sent four crew members to fix the breach. BUT APPARENTLY RNGESUS HATES THAT RUN AND LET A SINGLE LIGHT LASER HIT THE ROOM THEY WERE FIXING, AND KILLED ALL CREW MEMBERS THERE. After that i raged quit.

Dumbest loss of life desired to be Federation Cruiser, Sector 6, doing undoubtedly as a substitute just correct, besides a rebel fighter started out a hearth that purchased a bit bit bit out of control, i recommendation, meh, no concerns i've bought plenty of wellness left, a different volley or beam and the rebel is lifeless... So i come to a decision to situation my crew into two cubicles far flung from the now only a few which can also be on fireplace, and vent.
